COSA Fall Opportunities with Southwest Conservation Corps

Colorado is undoubtedly one of the most amazing places to experience the changing of the seasons, and now is YOUR chance to experience those changes up close and personal! A fall season with Southwest Conservation Corps is a great way to miss the heat, learn some beneficial and useful skills, make a positive impact on the public lands around you, and make new connections with others from around the country!

Southwest Conservation Corps is currently accepting applications for several fall positions between our two locations, Salida and Durango, Colorado. Fall members earn $330/week living stipend, are provided food while in the field, and receive an AmeriCorps Education Award at the completion of their term! Projects include trail construction and maintenance, hazardous fuels reduction, corridor clearing, habitat restoration and fencing, re-vegetation, and local environmental service projects.
